PHP and MySQL are found throughout the stacks of tech companies. They are particularly favoured by start-ups due to their ease of use and low barriers to entry. But what happens when a start-up becomes successful and strays in a direction that the existing stack was not built to deal with? This session takes a look at the example of Voxpopme, who found their data ingestion needs doubling year on year, with a sudden need to support datasets hundreds of times larger than before. We will explore the benefits of an inverted index DBMS such as Elasticsearch for storing and querying this kind of data, whilst looking at methods of integrating this new technology into a legacy PHP/MySQL application in a scalable, backwards-compatible way.
This webcast library microsite is provided by Civico Limited. We want as many people as possible to be
able to use this website. We do this by following the aims of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
(WCAG 2.0) in the following ways:
Use of Text and Images
Where possible this site enables screen readers to read text across the site. Images are not used in
place of text and those images that are used have alternative alt text files. This enables people with
sight impairment to hear what an image might represent. A reactive page design means screen text can
be made larger or smaller without affecting the content or function of the page or site when accessed
in common web browsers.
The colour design of this site avoids low contrast that might make it difficult for some people to view
site content and colour is not used to convey information.
To assist people to clearly read and understand the content and purpose of embedded document links text
sizes can be increased without the text spilling off the screen. Document links have a clear
description followed by the file type and size. And all documents are available in an accessible
version of Word, Excel or PDF etc.
As people who use keyboard-only or voice-only controls would have difficulty accessing parts of the
website that rely on a mouse click the site has been designed to be intuitive and simple to navigate.
This is to make it as easy as possible for people to find what they are looking for and includes
search and jump-to site tools.
Page Times and Animation Content
As some people can be disorientated by sudden page changes whilst viewing a web page, this site
optimises page-loading times and does not use intense motion graphics, animations or intense screen
Our commitment to accessibility is too continuous review this site to improve and add new accessibility
features. It is also to design WCAG’s guidelines into the development of this site.
If you cannot access parts of this website please email the Civico team: firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll consider your request and get back to you within 10 working days.
